RECOMMENDED CHOICES
The Walker Group Picks

# 5 GIRVIN 2/1

# 3 UNTRAPPED 9/2

# 2 IRAP 3/1

GIRVIN is my choice. Has solid speed figures and has to be considered for a bet in this contest. Smith's ROI over the last 30 days automatically makes this pony a solid contender. Sharp has him trained very well to break sharply out of the gate. UNTRAPPED - Must be given a shot given the class of races run recently. Has run admirably when running a dirt route race. IRAP - Should compete admirably in the pace battle which bodes well with this group.
